Very quiet section of New Orleans with beautiful historic homes under canopies of Live Oaks. If you have time, walk down some of the streets. Make sure you watch for the blue ceilings on the porches!

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
